MSW645 — Generalist Field Experience I With Seminar

Students in the generalist curriculum serve and learn for a total of 150 hours in an assigned, supervised, professional practice setting to acquire a broad understanding of the field of social work, to recognize and use generalist principles and concepts, and to assess and then select intervention methods to meet individual, group, family, and community needs.

The concurrent Integrative Field Seminar uses an appreciative inquiry approach to focus on generalist social work practice, emphasizing issues of diversity, ethics, social advocacy, social change, and social, economic, and environmental justice. The seminar integrates theory and evidence-based practice knowledge with students' firsthand application of knowledge and skills as they encounter social work roles, values, and ethics in the field.
